After twenty years, Dropkick Murphys remain bigger than ever! Having sold over 6 million albums worldwide, the band continues to sell out venues around the world. They’ve played Boston’s Fenway Park and been personally invited to share the stage with everyone from Foo Fighters to Bruce Springsteen to Mumford & Sons. Their single “I’m Shipping Up To Boston” – from 2005’s Certified-Gold ‘The Warrior’s Code’ has sold nearly 2 million copies.
“I’m Shipping Up To Boston,” a song with lyrics penned by Woody Guthrie, gained mainstream notoriety after being prominently featured in Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award-winning film The Departed. It can be commonly heard at sporting events and on television as a theme song for many sports teams (even outside of Boston).
